BELIZE: Security minister sues local TV station
Belize’s National Security Minister John Saldivar has filed a lawsuit against a local television station and a talk show host over statements made regarding the distribution of public funds.
He says he filed the suit against Plus TV and Patrick Jason Andrews because the statements attacked his character and reputation.
Saldivar said the statements were made about him regarding the distribution of public funds in his constituency through the government’s Christmas Cheer programme.
However, the National Security Minister says the Ministry of Human Development was responsible for that programme and that all bills were paid directly to the stakeholders involved.
